Arriva The Shires (Aylesbury) Used to run W Reg Route branded Darts around! They were withdrawn a couple of years ago. The remaining darts in Aylesbury are 51 and 53 Reg i think and they're pretty knackered now. One even got the new livery surprisingly!

Alright buses I guess - went on one a couple of months back, crawling uphill out of Dartmouth at about 15mph. It was WA56 OJN
It's nice to see the good old Darts instead of Enviro 200s sometimes.

Real nice shot of WA56 OJN!! I've been to Dartmouth just a few weeks ago! :cool:
For me, it's actually quite the opposite. In Paignton, the only city buses we get are these: E400, E400 MMC, ALX400, Optare Solo, Optare Solo SE, and Plaxton Pointer 2. All other buses are very were hereabouts. :)
Now don't get me wrong, I really love the Plaxton Pointer 2s, but I think it's always nice when I get to see an E200 or E200 (mainly in Exeter, or as Country Buses in Totnes and Newton Abbot). ;)

Dennis darts have been doing my local route for a long time but sometimes a e200 but operated by Hedingham in Colchester. P.S Colchester is full of Dennis Darts from Arriva and Panther Travel (all pics are not mine)

It's nice to see that after a year this chat is still going on. This was when I was relatively new

RATP DPS30679 in Hammersmith last year :)
This bus was sadly involved in a crash a week after I took this and was withdrawn the day after its accident :(

Also here are sister pointers DPS30672 and DPS30677 on the 72, which used to have a full allocation of pointers up until earlier this year.
Both these darts probably ended up in the scrapheap after their withdrawal from service in December 2018.

Route 419 used to have a full allocation of 2005 pointers which never strayed to other routes! Probably because they only had blinds for that route.
DPS30706 takes a breather at Richmond.

To keep this going, here is another dual door pointer . DPS30693 in the middle of a busy scene at Hammersmith Upper Bus Station, featuring some LTs and
a VWH.
